Botswana Miniature Sheets

Introduction
Botswana Commemorative Issues

Following Independence, in 1966 only one set of four stamps was issued to celebrate the Independence of the country.
A conservative policy was adopted that avoided a flood of un-necessary issues that is the hallmark of many Independent African States that started with Ghana in 1957 and is mirrored by a relatively close neighbouring country being Independent Lesotho.

Miniature Sheets
Issuing Miniature sheets to accompany a set of commemorative stamps became a Universal Philatelic gimmick that was an innovation boosting the income of Philatelic Bureaus. Miniature sheets essentially have no postal use and are simply an instrument to ensure that a stamp collector buys the same set of stamps twice.

The miniature sheets steadily evolved into a philatelic curse of today and at first they only included the same values that were issued in sheet format.
Then they either included some of the values of a set or a totally different design to the rest of the set. Another gimmick was to use the same designs but each stamp has a much higher denomination. Over the years the sheetlets steadily grew in size and from initially being square or rectangular, larger and strange shapes were introduced.

Botswana Miniature Sheets
Although Botswana Post indulged itself with the miniature sheet market, they extended a conservative policy that avoided the over-kill that other African states resorted to. Since Independence in 1966, in fifty years Botswana issued 52 miniature sheets which is an average of one per annum.
In reality the numbers ranged from one per year to as many as four in 2001 and there were several years in which no miniature sheets appeared.

On 30 September 1968 the first Botswana miniature sheet made its debut to commemorate the Opening of the National Museum and Art Gallery.

MS No 1 - 30 September 1968 - Opening of National Museum and Art Gallery - SG MS 248

The Botswana National Museum, also known as the National Museum and Art Gallery, is located in the capital Gaborone and is a multi-disciplinary institution that includes the National Art Gallery and Octagon Gallery. It displays traditional Botswana crafts and paintings and aims to celebrate the work of local artists.

The museum was established in 1967 via an Act of Parliament and it officially opened to the public in 1968. The museum celebrated a year-long 40th anniversary in 2008 under the banner of Museum as Agents of Social Change and Development, mirroring that used by the International Council of Museums.

The museum is also involved with the preservation of Tsodilo, the country's first world heritage area, among other efforts.
It is the caretaker of Tsholofelo Park, the burial place of the negro of Banyoles, known as El Negro in Botswana, following the body's return from the Darder Museum of Banyoles, in Spain.

This is the only Botswana MS Printed in Lithogravure by
De La Rue
 

Christmas Stamps accompanied by a miniature sheet Botswana introduced an annual set of Christmas stamps that was usually issued during November, but in some instances in late October or in early December. The first set made its debut on 11 November 1968 and the first miniature sheet followed with the second Christmas issue on 6 November 1969.

The designs of the Christmas stamps slowly evolved from local people observing the Christmas star to Nativity scenes and from 1974 the annual set depicted the Flora of Botswana. From 1978 the Christmas issues always included a symbolic emblem representing the Christmas star. Three exceptions to the flora theme are 1983 Dragonflies, 1984 Butterflies and 2005 Doves and Pigeons.
The Annual Christmas stamp policy includes six miniature sheets for 1969, 1970, 1971, 1972, 1974 and 1987.
The last annual Christmas set has a plant theme and was issued on 30 November 1998.
A few erratic sets followed in 2004, 2005 and 2006 and no Christmas stamps have been seen since.

Background History


A Postal Notice dated 28 July 1888 issued at Vryburg by the Acting Postmaster General Ernest C. Baxter announced that a mail service between Bechuanaland and Matabeleland was to be established shortly. A list of postal rates accompanied the notice. Five postal agencies along the route would be opened. Each office along with a postmaster would receive a date stamp and a barred oval numeral canceller.

The Offices, allocated BONC's and Postmasters were

KANYE 677 J. Williams

MOLEPOLOLE
674 Rev. S.J. Wookey

SHOSHONG
676 C. Austin

TATI
679 Sam Edwards

GUBULAWAYO
678 Rev. C.D. Helm

A postal notice dated 8 August 1888 issued by the G.P.O. Cape Town, announced that the service would commence on August 9th.
The Rev. John Smith Moffat organized the service; he was the Assistant Commissioner of Bechuanaland and the British agent in Gubulawayo.
During July and August 1888 he travelled north along the mail route and reached Tati on the 15th.

This Issue portrays Sir Seretse Khama 1921 - 1980 - The First President of Botswana

Born into one of the more powerful of the royal families of what was then the British Protectorate of Bechuanaland, and educated abroad in neighbouring South Africa and in the United Kingdom, he returned home with a popular but controversial bride to lead his country's independence movement.

He founded the Botswana Democratic Party in 1962 and became Prime Minister in 1965. In 1966, Botswana gained independence and Khama became its first president. During his presidency, the country underwent rapid economic and social progress.

Khama remained president until his death from pancreatic cancer in 1980, when he was succeeded by Vice President Quett Masire. Forty thousand people paid their respects while his body lay in state in Gaborone.
He was buried in the Royal Cemetery on a hill in Serowe, Central District.

Sir Seretse Khama, speech of Chancellor at University of Botswana, Lesotho and Swaziland graduation ceremony, 15 May 1970
Botswana Daily News - 19 May 1970 - Supplement

We were taught, sometimes in a very positive way, to despise ourselves and our ways of life. We were made to believe that we had no past to speak of, no history to boast of. The past, so far as we were concerned, was just a blank and nothing more. Only the present mattered and we had very little control over it. It seemed we were in for a definite period of foreign tutelage, without any hope of our ever again becoming our own masters. The end result of all this was that our self-pride and our self-confidence were badly undermined.

It should now be our intention to try to retrieve what we can of our past. We should write our own history books to prove that we did have a past, and that it was a past that was just as worth writing and learning about as any other. We must do this for the simple reason that a nation without a past is a lost nation, and a people without a past is a people without a soul.

Tsodilo

With one of the highest concentrations of rock art in the world, Tsodilo has been called the Louvre of the Desert.
Over 4,500 paintings are preserved in an area of only ten square kms of the Kalahari Desert.
The archaeological record of the area gives a chronological account of human activities and environmental changes over at least 100,000 years.
Local communities in this hostile environment respect Tsodilo as a place of worship frequented by ancestral spirits.


Protection and management requirements

The site owned by the Government is currently protected in terms of the Monuments & Relics Act 2001, and by conditions of the Anthropological Research Act 1967, National Parks Act 1967, and Tribal Act 1968.

Declared a National Monument in 1927, the responsibility for looking after Tsodilo Hills rests with the Department of National Museum and Monuments in collaboration with the Tsodilo Management Authority, an independent advisory group comprising the Tsodilo Community Trust, community based organizations, NGOs and selected critical government based Departments.

To ensure the conservation of all the site attributes, in 1997, a revised Integrated Management Plan was developed and approved by stakeholders. An Integrated management Plan detailing community initiatives was developed in 2007 and currently being implemented in the buffer area of the site. With the assistance of the African World Heritage Fund, a Core Area Management Plan was developed for the site in 2009.
The main objective of the previous and the current management plans is to ensure the conservation of the values of the site. In addition to the existing site office, and the Tsodilo Management Authority Trust, the Government has opened a regional Monument office to directly oversee the implementation of the management plan for the site.

MS No 11 - 28 June 1976 National Currency - SG MS 366 - Designed by M. Bryan - Printed by Questa


The pula was introduced in 1976, replacing the South African rand at par and despite a 12% devaluation in May 2005, the pula remains one of the strongest currencies in Africa.

Coins

In 1976, coins were introduced in denominations of 1, 5, 10, 25 and 50 thebe and 1 pula. The 1 thebe was struck in aluminum, with the 5 thebe in bronze and the others in cupro-nickel. These coins were round except for the scalloped 1 pula.
Bronze, dodecagonal 2 thebe coins were introduced in 1981 and discontinued after 1985.

In 1991, bronze-plated steel replaced bronze in the 5 thebe, nickel-plated steel replaced cupro-nickel in the 10, 25 and 50 thebe and the 1 pula changed to a smaller, nickel-brass, equilateral-curve seven-sided coin.

In 1994
a similarly shaped, nickel-brass 2 pula was introduced and in 2004, the composition was changed to brass-plated steel and the size was slightly reduced.

In 1998, following the withdrawal of the 1 and 2 thebe, smaller 5, 10, 25 and 50 thebe coins were introduced, with the 5 and 25 thebe coins being seven-sided and the 10 and 50 thebe coins remaining round. A bimetallic 5 pula depicting a Mopane caterpillar and a branch of the Mopane tree it feeds on was introduced in 2000 composed of a cupronickel center in a ring made of aluminium-nickel-bronze. In 2013 a new series of coins was introduced.

Banknotes

On 23 August 1976 the Bank of Botswana introduced notes in denominations of 1, 2, 5, and 10 pula On 16 February 1978 a 20-pula note followed . The 1 and 2 pula notes were replaced by coins in 1991 and 1994. On 29 May 1990 and 23 August 1993 the first 50 and 100 pula notes were introduced respectively.
In 2000 the 5 pula note was replaced by a coin. The original 1, 2 and 5 pula banknotes were demonetized on 1 July 2011.
The latest series of notes was introduced on 23 August 2009 and contains for the first time, a 200-pula banknote. Source Wikipedia

1995 A change of policy for Miniature sheets or sheetlets

1995 Endangered Species - the Brown Hyena, the four stamps were printed in sheets of fifty and in addition se-tenant strips of four were arranged in a sheetlet of 16 with pictorial selvedge.
The foregoing is not regarded as being a miniature sheet.

Botswana Post joins the trait of exploiting the stamp collector as the connoisseur who desires all the available permutations requires a set of single stamps, a se-tenant strip plus a complete sheetlet. It requires the purchase of six sets at a cost of 15 Pula instead of one set at P2 50t.
